Day 5 - 15: Ascent of Kun
We will use two more camps above camp 1. Camp 2 is located at approximately 6,000m and camp 3 is our high camp at 6,300m. The Sherpas will fix around 1,400m of rope on the steeper sections of the climb.
The route between camp 1 and camp 2 crosses the glacier, then follows slopes of around 45 degrees on mixed ground. This is the most technical part of the climb, taking 5 - 7 hours and utilising 1,000m of fixed rope to reach camp 2. From camp 2 to camp 3 we rope up and cross a huge snow plateau, whichseparates Nun and Kun, to set up camp at the base of the summit ridge. From our high camp at 6,300m, we follow slopes of 35 to 40 degrees onto a saddle on the right-hand skyline ridge (6,500m). From here the ridge is followed to the rounded summit. From the summit, we descend the same way and return to camp 2, before descending to base camp the following day
